INSIDE: All you need to know about the Bali Airport Playground for kids.

11.00pm on the final day of our Bali holiday, and we were in line to check in at the airport.

The Bali Ngurah Rai airport air was thick and hot, and sweat dripped down every crevasse on my body, including a river flowing down between my boobs.

The kids’ hair was drenched in perspiration. 

It was also way, way past the three year old’s bedtime, and suddenly he was desperate for a drink of water.

Fittingly, our last bottle was just confiscated at the security check-in.

A monster storm was brewing in this kid, and from experience, I knew it was NOT going to be pretty.

Unless I held an intervention of some kind, quick smart. 

And THIS is why parents need playgrounds for toddlers at airports.

Somewhere for them to run off the tension BEFORE it explodes! 

Take a look below for details of the BALI Airport Lounge playground for kids.

UPDATE: The Bali Airport Playground is currently CLOSED.

Sadly, the Bali Airport Lounge playground is currently out of action.

This is what’s left of the Bali airport playground.

The coloured climbing fort is now hiding around a corner near Gate 6.

Our reader & friend Susan sent us these pics, above and below.

Just for general information: we have been at Bali Airport on June 5th 2018 and searched for this playarea but it is gone. Only the sign on the wall is left. We were informed that there are no plans to reopen the area anytime soon.

HI Joana Oh, this is sad news. Thank you for letting me know. I'll make an edit to the post now. Hopefully they reinstate something sooner rather than later. It's so helpful to parents!
